Any employee wishing to be promoted to management will be following a new path from August 2018. The road won’t necessarily be any less rocky, but the signposting will have improved. “In the future, day-to-day performance at work will take priority,” says Lars Hilgers, the person responsible for personnel development. “Employees will have the opportunity to show what they’re capable of, and be evaluated according to what they accomplish. In an open corporate culture, we want to promote diversity and differences in management too.” The framework for the new recruitment process is in place, and details are being finalized.
